Shooting At Madden Tournament In Florida Leaves Three Dead, Including The Shooter
An active shooter has attacked this weekend's Madden NFL 19 tournament in Jacksonville, Florida at Chicago Pizza, the city's Sheriff's department has confirmed.
[Update 3] The names of the two victims have been released, according to WJAX-TV (via CBS News ). They are 24-year-old Taylor Robertson of Ballard, West Virginia and 21-year-old Eli Clayton of Woodland Hills, California. Robertson was a member of Dot City Gaming, which memorialized his passing on Twitter . Clayton, a former high school football player, was also remembered on Twitter by his former team.
[Update 2] During a media briefing, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams shared more key details on the tragedy. He confirmed that 911 calls began to come in regarding a shooting at the Chicago Pizza at Jacksonville Landing at 1:34 PM. At 1:36 PM, officers were on the scene, and shortly thereafter, businesses in the area were locked down. SWAT and bomb teams were on-site, Williams said.
Williams stated that there were three total fatalities, including the alleged shooter. The Sheriff said the shooter was a white male who took his own life. Williams confirmed that the alleged shooter, a 24-year-old from Baltimore, was in Jacksonville for the Madden tournament taking place. However, Williams said he can’t yet share more details on a potential motive.
Williams also confirmed that the alleged shooter carried out the violence with at least one handgun. Authorities located his vehicle; and they believe he stayed locally, potentially at a hotel. Williams asked the public to send in any information they might have.
Nine victims were transported to area hospitals, seven of whom had gunshot wounds. Additionally, two further gunshot victims took themselves to the hospital for treatment. They are all in stable condition at this time, Williams said. In total, there were 14 victims; 12 had gunshot wounds and two had “other injuries” sustained when fleeing the restaurant. The number may change as authorities become aware of other people who might have taken themselves to the hospital, Williams said.
Jacksonville mayor Lenny Curry also spoke at the press briefing. He said local, state, and federal agencies are working together on the case. He said tragic events like this are "all too common."
Additionally, the NFL and other video game companies released statements.

Three dead, nine injured in mass shooting at ‘Madden NFL’ tournament in Jacksonville
Here’s what we know so far:
A gunman killed two people and injured nine before turning the gun on himself in a mass shooting at a ‘Madden NFL’ tournament in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday. The gunman, 24-year-old David Katz from Baltimore, killed himself after opening fire inside the GLHF Game Bar at Jacksonville Landing, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s department police. A possible motive for the shooting has not been released at this time.
How did this unfold?
The tournament on Sunday was a qualification event, with the winner moving on to a larger tournament in Las Vegas scheduled for later this year. Dozens of east coast players traveled to Jacksonville for the event, including large-name players inside the Madden scene, and professional gamers who are members of esports teams.
Shortly after the round of 32 was announced, gamer Drini Gjoka, member of compLexity gaming tweeted that there had been a shooting at the tournament.
The tourney just got shot up. Im leavinng and never coming back
— Drini Gjoka (@YoungDrini) August 26, 2018
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office followed up by saying there was a mass shooting at Jacksonville Landing, a waterfront festival marketplace where the GLHF Game Bar was located. Police warned people to take cover, indicating it was still dangerous to enter the area.
The tournament, which was streaming at the time of the shooting, helped shed light on what took place. Players were getting ready to start a game when shots could be heard in the background , followed by screams.
What police are saying
In a Sunday afternoon press conference, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office stated that there was only one suspect who was killed at the scene, and that David Katz had been competing in the tournament before allegedly opening fire. Police have not released a possible motive at this time, but one of the gamers at the tournament told the Los Angeles Times that Katz “targeted a few people” after he was eliminated from the tournament.
Two players, 27-year-old Taylor “SpotMePlzzz” Robertson from West Virginia and 22-year-old Eli “True” Clayton from California, were killed in the shooting. Robertson, a father and pro-gamer, won The Madden Classic in 2017, while Clayton was a former high school football player who reportedly made the switch to professional Madden as a way to keep his love for the game.
FBI agents raided Katz’s Baltimore home as part of an ongoing investigation, but have not released additional information.

Update: Mass shooting at Madden Championship Series event in Florida leaves several dead
This post has been updated to indicate that three people, including the shooter, were killed in the Jacksonville mass shooting event earlier today.
At least eleven people have been shot and three people were killed in a mass shooting attack at a live-streamed competition for the “ Madden NFL 19 ” game at an arcade in Jacksonville, Fla., according to local news reports .
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s office confirmed three people were killed in the attack, including the shooter.
“We just finished clearing The Landing of potential witnesses and victims there,” said Sheriff Mike Williams in a statement broadcast on Facebook Live. “We have no outstanding suspects,” Williams said. “We have one suspect in this case. He is deceased at the scene.”
According to a report in The Los Angeles Times , the shooter was a player who had lost during the competition and then shot other attendees at the event before killing himself.
The event was live-streamed on Twitch and there are multiple audio streams that broadcast the sounds of the shooting live.
Multiple participants in the event took to Twitter to describe the scene.
Me and my gf are ok everyone and out of the Jville area. This is absolutely sickening. Please pray for the madden players right now injured during the shooting. Shit like this really makes you rethink your actions and the way you live. For sure gunna be some changes going forward
— x D3liveranc3 x (@mpinter9) August 26, 2018
The sheriff’s office confirmed via tweet that witnesses to the shooting were hiding in locked areas in the shopping area where the event — and shooting — occurred.
We are finding many people hiding in locked areas at The Landing. We ask you to stay calm, stay where you are hiding. SWAT is doing a methodical search inside The Landing. We will get to you. Please don’t come running out. #TheLandingMassShooting https://t.co/qBJvkaO7xT

“This is a horrible situation and our deepest sympathies go out to all involved,” said Electronic Arts in a statement about the shooting.

— EA SPORTS Madden NFL (@EAMaddenNFL) August 26, 2018
In a direct message to The Los Angeles Times, one witness, Steven “Steveyj” Javaruski, said that the gunman had targeted “a few” people and shot at least five before shooting himself.
The event was a Madden tournament with about 250 people in attendance. It was intended to be a competition that would select attendees for a final tournament in Las Vegas.

I love u like a brother. I’m gonna miss hearing you laugh everyday and seeing your genuine smile. pic.twitter.com/Balk88T1ES

Robertson, of Ballard, West Virginia, had played 18 games as part of the Madden community.

In a statement this evening the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department clarified reports that there were three fatalities of the shooting — including the gunman. There were 11 reported casualties from the shooting who were taken or took themselves to local hospitals and all are reported in stable condition.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families who were all affected by this senseless act of violence here today,” said Chief Kurtis Wilson of the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.
The National Football League responded to the shooting with a statement offering its own condolences to the victims of the attack.
OFFICIAL NFL STATEMENT:
We are shocked and deeply saddened by the horrific tragedy today in Jacksonville. Our hearts go out to all those affected. (1/2)
— NFL (@NFL) August 26, 2018
Indeed, the entire gaming community has spent much of the day online coming to terms with the violence that unfolded in Jacksonville.
To anyone ive ever blasted or talked smack to on stream I sincerely apologize. I was always talking to the gamertag in the corner of my screen and never the human being on the other end of the sticks. Things gunna be different going forward. I respect everyone out here doing this

Other eSports platforms also offered their thoughts on the tragedy.

The shooting is at least the seventh mass shooting to occur in the U.S. this year, according to data from Mother Jones. And the second mass-shooting event in Florida in six months, following the attack at Parkland High School .
Today's shooting in Jacksonville is at least the seventh mass shooting of 2018. We've been tracking all such attacks from 1982 to now. See our database here: https://t.co/JcRM1OCdiV
— Mother Jones (@MotherJones) August 26, 2018
After news of the shooting, advocates have taken their advocacy positions. NRA pundits are calling for better security and the abolition of public gun free zones in the states where open carry has made such policies necessary. And gun control advocates are pointing out that the creation of more stringent gun laws would obviate the need for either tighter security or gun free zones.
Meanwhile, 11 people are recovering in hospitals from wounds inflicted by a 24-year-old who shot them and killed himself over his performance in a video game tournament. And two other people are dead for the same reason. They’re probably not listening to advocates right now.
The President, who was briefed on the situation in Jacksonville, has yet to issue a statement.

Read on GameSpot | Share | Tweet

The tail end of summer is here and autumn is on its way, and that can only mean football is back. Likewise, video game football is back, as EA's annual addition to the Madden franchise helps kick off both the football season and the busy release season for new games. Madden NFL 19 is coming next week, and reviews are already rolling in.
The consensus is that this year's Madden is an iterative improvement on last year's installment. Reviews run the gamut from the strongest franchise entry in years to a solid but unspectacular sequel, but all seem to agree it's dependable for some gridiron action. Our Madden NFL 19 review in progress praised the wealth of Ultimate Team activities and more precise control, but found that some changes to Longshot and Franchise XP may irk longtime fans. Read on for a variety of critical responses, and check out GameSpot's sister site Metacritic for even more reviews.
Game: Madden NFL 19Developer / Publisher: Electronic ArtsPlatforms: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox OneRelease date: August 10Price: US $60 / £60 / AU $69GameSpot (Review in Progress) -- 8/10
"Madden 19 is an excellent football game that improves on last year's entry in almost every way. There are problems, but there has never been a football game that more authentically represents the NFL than this in terms of presentation, controls, and depth. Madden 19 servers go live on August 10, and GameSpot's final review will be published after we've thoroughly tested their stability." -- Eddie Makuch [ Full review ]
GamesRadar -- 9/10
"Despite a few niggling issues, Madden 19 is going to be a game you'll be playing well into the Super Bowl and beyond. It effortlessly makes its way onto the series' Mount Rushmore; every swaggering step and ankle-breaking shimmy all the more reason to want to return and replay a game at the peak of its powers on the pitch. Madden has never been better in terms of cleats-on-the-ground nitty-gritty gameplay. Its periphery content, such as Longshot: Homecoming, shouldn't be overlooked, either. Care and attention has been poured into the game from opening coin toss to final whistle--and you're going to love every minute of it." -- Bradley Russell [ Full review ]
IGN -- 8.9/10
"Madden 19 returns the primary focus where it belongs: that moment-to-moment gameplay between the end zones. It's only true stumbling point is the lackluster story mode that fails to recapture the magic of the first, but that's entirely offset by the new player handling that once again leverages the power of the Frostbite engine. Most importantly, Madden 19 has finally cracked that slightly repetitive feel that can make it tough to go on, game after game. With Real Player Motion delivering a fluid on-the-field experience, and Franchise mode customization offering another level of realism, Madden is in a great place." -- Dustin Toms [ Full review ]
Digital Trends -- 8/10
"Madden NFL 19 offers an accessible Ultimate Team mode, a welcome player progression change, and minor gameplay tweaks that make the game ever so slightly more realistic. Longshot: Homecoming, however, is an unmitigated disaster." -- Steven Petite [ Full review ]
Game Informer -- 8/10
"Madden 19 doesn’t have earth-shattering features that draw me in. Some new features don't shake out how I hoped they might, and other problems haven't been fixed. But I'm still going to spend hours with this title for the way it captures the sport and puts me in the center of it with some fantastic gameplay moments. Like when the real life team you root for loses in the playoffs, you rue the mistakes but smile at the victories that got them there. Being a video game sports fan and a fan of real-life sports is no different. Sometimes things don't always go the way you think they might, but if you can't find joy in being a part of it all, then perhaps you need to find something else to invest your time into." -- Matthew Kato [ Full review ]
USGamer -- 3.5/5
"Madden 19 is a solid, if occasionally ragged, follow-up to last year's big transition to Frostbite. The improvements to the animation and franchise mode stand out, but Longshot: Homecoming feels like a step back from last year's ambitious introduction. The multitude of interesting but mostly subtle updates ultimately make this an entry that is primarily geared toward hardcore fans of the series." -- Kat Bailey [ Full review ]
